    Belittling and dismissing a stance by coming up with some deragatory name for people is the adolescent stuff of those who actually have no real way to defend their position.

    I guess all the doctors and nurses working around the clock to try to save the lives of COVID patients are "Covid religionists". 

     

    False equivalency.  :D

    And what will you cook up next? It ain't over yet. Stay tuned.

    I am tuned.  Are you?  For example are you aware of the increasing number of vaccinated people showing up with covid?

    Stay tuned.  I'm not the cooker but I do like to share stuff that doesn't fit the narrative around here.  That ain't over yet.  :D

    Mudgirl I am not the math challenged one, thats you.  .1 is 1 in a 1000 dead not 1 in a hundred like you claim.  And then later you claim 1 out of 10 Mexicans are dying from Covid.  Is the coastal heat starting to get to you?  

    In fact the death rate of Mexicans WHO GET covid is close to 10 percent, a very high figure.  The data source I cited shows 2.3 million cases and 212,000 deaths.  That is pushing 10 percent.  Clearly the combination of poor general public health and minimal medical facilities is a factor here.  

    One in one thousand locally is correct.  As a municipio our population has really out performed the norm in Mexico.  And this despite being exposed to higher infection rates in GDL from our large weekender population.

    The point being that when one looks at the history of pandemics, there have been far worse than this.  Keeping things in historical perspective and being skeptical of some of the measures taken with this one that have had extremely adverse personal and economic impacts and have also caused deaths doesn't really fit the label of "denial" the covidly religious like to fling around.  

    What concerns me about this one is that it might be a created "bug" as opposed to a natural one and the people who may have been complicit in that happening.  What will they cook up next?

  4. It is an Op Ed, Gringal.  And this piece is definitely over the top but it does make a point.  LOL

    I'm of the belief that the key preventative measure is avoiding or minimizing exposure time in the most vulnerable settings.  I limit mask wearing to those situations but the first line of defense is avoiding them as much as possible, with the side benefit of not needing a mask so much.

    Here is a good summary of those most likely places to get covid from a source I suspect most here like:

    Everyone seems to have an agenda and favorite narrative these days, Jerry.  :D

    Forgive me but I worked all my life in surgery and ICUs all over the US and couldn’t help but laugh at your statements. Don’t take it personally, I laugh at flat earth proponents also.

    I made no statement in reference to the original post.  I posted a peer reviewed paper from a government site and suggested only that one draw their own conclusions.  There is plenty more out there on this topic both pro and con.

    Assuming one is a proponent of anything for simply posting something about it is jumping to conclusions.

    Cats, TOB has run off all the dissenters.  The same folks would like to do that here as well.  It is easy to have "manners" when everyone agrees with you.  It is unfortunate that the holders of a certain ideology just can't handle dissent without getting personal and nasty but that is just how it is these days.

    Mainecoon’s info will revolutionize the health care industry.  I’m always aghast at the shit he comes up with. 

    First, it is not my information.  Second I'm always aghast at how some here just can't resist getting personal. 

    A little research on this topic would show one that there is a great deal of discussion and dissent about the efficacy of masks and their health effects when worn for long periods of time.  I realize however if one is more of a covid religionist than a skeptic one will tend to feel angered and threatened by anything that challenges the dogma.

    51 / 50000 = 0.10 percent 

    Thanks for the correction.  That also is quite the massive number.  :D 

    Wonder what the local death rate is from drug crime?

    Lakeside you should know by now that threads like this will drive the covid religionists to fury.  

    Lots of data here.

    Ok sorry it must have gone up 3 since last I checked.

    So we are now currently at 51 deaths after a year and a half of rapid spreading.

    Putting that in terms of per capita numbers, less than 0.01 percent of municipio population after a year, hardly any from the local expat community and most with accompanying conditions of obesity, heart disease and diabetes.

  9. Note the peer reviewed source:

    The existing scientific evidences challenge the safety and efficacy of wearing facemask as preventive intervention for COVID-19. The data suggest that both medical and non-medical facemasks are ineffective to block human-to-human transmission of viral and infectious disease such SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19, supporting against the usage of facemasks. Wearing facemasks has been demonstrated to have substantial adverse physiological and psychological effects. These include hypoxia, hypercapnia, shortness of breath, increased acidity and toxicity, activation of fear and stress response, rise in stress hormones, immunosuppression, fatigue, headaches, decline in cognitive performance, predisposition for viral and infectious illnesses, chronic stress, anxiety and depression. Long-term consequences of wearing facemask can cause health deterioration, developing and progression of chronic diseases and premature death. Governments, policy makers and health organizations should utilize prosper and scientific evidence-based approach with respect to wearing facemasks, when the latter is considered as preventive intervention for public health.

    Don't shoot the messenger.  Read it and draw your own conclusions.

    It is better than the US imported and that includes the overpriced Costco. Ya can cut it with a fork!-jaja! I buy 2-3 ribeyes at a time and don't need someone passing negative total BS shortages and stocking up and don't have a giant freezer anyhow!-SNORK!

    OK so tell us from whom exactly and how you buy this beef.  Does he come daily, weekly, what time of day and how do we find him?

  11. I'm still working on that leaner part.  Meaner I got down cold.  :D 

    Stronger gets handled with three trips to the gym per week.  

    Interestingly I don't like steak near as much as I used to, even the high dollar stuff from Costco.  I greatly prefer chicken and fish and hamburgers and Costco hotdogs over steak.  

    Now that is a bit weird I will freely admit.

    In the larger view, covid and over population has put the entire supply chain for a lot of stuff, including food, under great stress.  There's just not much slack in the system these days and it is more easily disrupted.

    My esposa continues to be a dedicated carnivore, however, at considerable expense.  :D

    So you are saying you have a right to a completely open phone???   Not so sure.  Lets see what others say.  Phones didn't exist when the constitution was written.   Technology and the constitution have problems.  Can you imagine being a judge and dealing with issues like this. No thanks. By the way the new phone will only work for you and it will use this info to stop working if the phone is stolen.  Kinda as easy as making the fingerprint option on current phones mandatory.  Time will tell.  I suppose you could cut off finger but than you could have a heat sensor added to the cell phone.   Governments will not tolerate folks so independent. 

    Not everyone can afford a $1000 cell phone with those anti theft features.

    The legal question here is not about the phone.  It is about the right of the Mexican government to treat everyone as a potential criminal and require the submission of such detailed and very personal information.  I expect the Supreme Court here won't have a lot of trouble figuring that at all.

    Can't imagine why you would be comfortable with that last sentence but different strokes for different folks.

  13. No but a lot of places pretty much require them to do business.  In many places in this country cell phones are the only option.

    This is not only a violation of privacy rights it will be ineffective.  Read the article.  Most of the phones used by criminals are stolen as the article points out.

    Speaking for myself, I don't want to see Mexico turn into a police state like the two NOB.  Thanks.
